Uh oh – an injury?

Today started off with a wonderfully relaxed morning of getting ready for work including time to make blueberry waffles with my new Christmas waffle iron!  I even packed my bag to go straight to the gym after work (goal – check!).

Things took a turn when at work today, I realized that I had to send transcripts from the fall semester in to one of the schools by tomorrow! Eeek!  Cue crazy stressed out moment.  Fortunately, I was able to run straight to school to get sealed copies of my transcripts and express mail them for delivery by tomorrow at 3:00PM.  Phew.

I’m finally on my way to the gym an hour an a half later than intended due to my little detour and I realize that my shoulder has started hurting.  I have no clue what I did to it.  It’s not your typical soreness from lifting, and it’s kind of on the back of my shoulder.  Despite my years and years of swimming, I have never had a shoulder injury and I’m a little nervous about it.  I stretched it out really well and decided to lift anyways, it didn’t hurt during any of my moves (NROLW Stage 1 workout A), so that’s promising.  It mostly hurts when I lift my arm straight over my head.  Fingers crossed that’s just some intense DOMS from lifting on Sunday and it’s better soon.

I did manage to increase my weights today, so I think I’m getting some of my strength back!  I hope this trend continues.

    Yikes! I hope your shoulder is okay! I’m being lazy and not blogging, or working out. I think I just needed a break from everything. I’ll be back eventually! 🙂
